ABOUT

Welcome to The Natural Nutritionist, it’s so great to have you here.

With a passion for spreading a positive message about real food and the incredible affect it has on health, fertility and performance, Steph launched The Natural Nutritionist in 2011 and is on a mission to inspire others to make health a priority in their lives. 

All of our recipes contain minimal ingredients, and if we can make them, so can you! We don’t have any formal kitchen qualifications, just a love of quality and delicious food.

Meet Steph

HEAD HONCHO & NUTRITIONIST

Hi there, I’m Steph. I’m a mother, Nutritionist, yogi and founder of The Natural Nutritionist, now living in Launceston, Tasmania with my husband Ian and our gorgeous daughter, Grace. And I’m on a mission to inspire others to make health a priority in their lives.

I have been practising as a Nutritionist since 2011 and have seen thousands of lives changed around the globe, from adopting this way of life. We only need to look around our own neighbourhood to realise that chronic diseases such as obesity, diabetes, heart disease and cancer are reaching epidemic proportions, and to the science that proves how much our modern-day dietary guidelines are to blame. I am honoured to have you join us here, to not only present you with the research but teach you the healing power of real food.

Whether you are looking to further your clinical knowledge and/or wanting to deepen your own health journey, remember this: real food comes out of the ground, off a tree, or from an animal.

A little more about me:

  • I have an undergraduate degree in Sport and Exercise Science and a post graduate degree in Human Nutrition.
  • I’m a member of the Complementary Medicine Association (CMA).
  • I am most passionate about preconception, pregnancy and postpartum nutrition and believe that by building healthy mothers, microbiomes and metabolisms, not only will we thrive, but so too will the next generation, our children.
  • Along with running The Natural Nutritionist, I host the podcast, Health, Happiness & Human Kind, and am a passionate mentor to many newly graduated Nutritionists and Integrative Nutrition Health Coaches. You can learn more here.
  • I have been gluten free for over decade now, and literally because it makes me happy. I eat refined sugar once or twice a year and certainly don’t feel like I’m missing a thing. 

Meet Elly

HOLISTIC NUTRITIONIST & JERF LOVER

Hello! I’m Elly. Marathon runner, Nutritionist, wannabe yogi and yes, my favourite food is kale. I believe that food is fuel, but above all else, should be enjoyed.

My goal is to see you smash your chosen lifestyle goals. By teaching you how to prioritise real food and providing a little accountability, I’ll help you get there.

My curiosity with nutrition began when I was 17 – obsessed with watching tennis, football and ironman I pondered how, through nutrition, these incredible athletes could maximise performance. Not quite what the average 17 year old is thinking about, my passion in the making.

Since then I’ve been on a health journey of my own – I have experienced the struggle of juggling study, training and building a career, as well as the associated burnout, but I’ve also (thankfully) turned it around by focusing on real food and lifestyle. The personal experience has reminded me that through nutrition we can fuel the best version of ourselves – we all have ambitions and going about life in third gear just won’t suffice when it comes to achieving them.

I have a bachelor’s degree in Health Science, majoring in Exercise Science and Nutrition, I’m a member of the Nutrition Society of Australia and a certified Integrative Health Coach. I specialise in working with individuals to maximise their potential through eating real food.

Meet BIANCA

MOTHER & HOLISTIC NUTRITION COACH

Most days you’ll find Bianca rocking around with her two beautiful children, Breya and Harlan. Family is the most important piece of her puzzle, but she is just as passionate about delicious, nutritious food, living an inspired life, and helping other women feel supported.

She worked as a senior health coach at Australia’s best independent fitness centre for over 6 years. She has a background in personal training and health coaching of over 10 years and is also currently completing her post graduate degree in Human Nutrition.

Since becoming a mama in 2018, she has realised how much this amazing gift and journey needs far more support and attention than it currently receives. If you are a mama or mama to be feeling overwhelmed, a little daunted or want some tips to elevate your pregnancy birth and beyond journey, rest assured you are in great hands with her.

She provides nutrition and lifestyle support from preconception all the way through to postpartum and introducing solids for little ones. Your success is of utmost importance to her, so helping you to build the perfect care tribe so you can thrive in your motherhood journey is a pivotal part of what she offers.
